Departed Geraldton 0828hrs Today

19-Sep-2012

All lines off. Left the dock 0828. Overcast 15 knot Westerly, sloppy left over chop on a long 15 second swell.

Punching out through the Channel. Confused seas. Intermittent rain squalls. Deck being squared away. All well on board.

Now under full sail making 5 knots due South. Sunny weather, blue sea, a balanced ship - perfect.
